As to what is legal for posting on the LMA...I'm thinking that copyright's don't exist on the composition of classical music, i.e. Mozart, Brahms, Beethoven, the only 'go-ahead' needed would be from the performer, as the performance is the creative property of the performer...Does this sound right to everyone else, or do the estates of the classical composers hold the rights to the music and any performance of it?? In any case, I will definitely spread the word at WKCR, Columbia University radio, where I DJ a couple shows...

I am not a lawyer, and even from lawyers it seems difficult to figure out.

There is a book that is easy to read and very informative. It is called "Public Domain" on Nolo press (the folks that write the books on how to do stuff without hiring a lawyer).

That book has cookbook systems for figuring out what is public domain.
